Miniature four-panel folding screen: Dragon and Clouds

The artwork has been inspired by Dragons and Clouds by Kaihō Yūshō (1522-1615), owned by Kenninji Temple. One of the dragons has been defeated, and the other has been illustrated on the folding screen. It carefully replicates the style of the original artwork, including the silver background, the simple light and shade of Kaihō Yūshō's brushwork, and the softness of the ink.

The artwork has been inspired by Dragons and Clouds by Kaihō Yūshō (1522-1615), owned by Kenninji Temple. Although the artwork is displayed as a hanging scroll painting, about 64.5cm wide, it used to be fitted into a wall until the 1934 Muroto typhoon destroyed the large abbot's quarters. It is inspired by a previous artwork depicting two dragons facing each other. This folding screen illustrates one of those dragons. It carefully replicates the style of the original artwork, including the silver background, the simple light and shade of Kaihō Yūshō's brushwork, and the softness of the ink.
